Today is like a dream for me.
Several months ago I was contacted by Amy Berkowitz who writes the craft section for our local Newspaper. Not the dinky local paper, the big one, you know the one you buy for the coupons on Sunday.
I responded to her questions via e-mail and then did not hear back from her.
Hadn't heard back till last Tuesday.
Last Tuesday night the salon was slow so I went home early and the phone rang. Hello, this is Amy Berkowitz from the Times Herald Record. I almost dropped the phone. She and I had an instant connection and spoke for a while. Then we made an appointment to speak again that Friday. We spoke for over an hour that day. She is an artist and totally "got" me in a way others sometimes don't. We spoke again the other night and she told me the article would be out Thursday.
I only half believed her.
This morning before I even woke up my husband went out and bought 3 papers!
I was like is it really in there? He opened to page 23 and there it was - a picture of me and the necklace that I have as my facebook avatar :-) I love that necklace. He said the lady at the gas station asked if there was something special in the paper. He proudly responded "yeah, my wife." :-) So sweet.
I see they have a galley of other photos of my work at http://www.recordonline.com/
This is surreal.
